The Merciful Benefactor, The Merciful Redeemer
Out of Respect for Man’s Creator
A Message of Concern
By Imam W. Deen MohammedWhat would happen if people would sit in church¬es throughout the world for centuries with the image of an African American man as savior of the world before them?
What would this do to the mind of the world’s children?
What would happen to the world’s children put under a figure of a particular race presented, pitiable, and in pain “the Savior of all men”?
Qur’an, Surah 3, verse 64:
“Say, Oh people of the Book! Come to common terms as between us and you: that we worship none but G-d, that we associate no partner with Him, that we erect not from among ourselves lords and patrons other than G-d. If then they turn back, say ye ‘bear witness that we (at least) are Muslims (bowing to G-d’s Will).’”
Civilized nations should want that their religions be also civilized.
False worship is the worst form of oppression. We are no gods. We are only men, “mortals from the mortals, He (Allah) created.” (Qur’an)
